Summary:
Abramo Canka is an athletic swingman that has been getting some draft buzz as a second round prospect for the 2021 draft.  Both ESPN and NBADraft.Net currently have him listed in their top 100 of their big boards, and Canka’s length, athleticism, and upside may be reasons why. 

He has been getting some playing time for Nevezis in Lithuania’s top league, the LKL.  He didn’t take many threes last year and he has not played much this season, but he’s shown promise as a versatile player on both ends of the floor.  Right now, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2022 draft.
